PICOT at Friends of Yellagonga Regional Park
A large group of 33 volunteers from PICOT (Process, Instrument, Controls and Operations Technology) team came together to volunteer with Friends of Yellagonga (FOY). The motivation for the team volunteering day was to give back to the community while building their relations between each other. The team also wanted to focus on inclusion and diversity and connection to the land. Seeing as the team were about to move into Woodside’s new campus Mia Yellagonga, it seemed fitting to support an organisation who focus on conserving, rehabilitating and protecting Yellagonga Regional Park.
FOY formed in 1993 and works in tandem with the Department of Parks and Wildlife (DPAW). The group are a group of local enthusiastic conservation volunteers who desire to protect and restore the bio-diversity of Perth’s northern suburbs regional parks for current and future generations to enjoy. Yellagonga regional park covers 13 Kilometres including, 3,500 acres of land and 1,400 acres of wetlands which include; Lake Joondalup, Beenup Swamp, Walluburnup Swamp and Lake Goolllelal.
